2-step picking in EWM with serial numbers

Hello everyone

My question is about EWM...

I have a material named "X", managed with serial numbers, type C: this is, "Serial Number Requirement" --> "Serial Numbers in Inventory Management". This is an express requirement of the client and I cannot change it.

Also, I have two outbound deliveries with 1 unit each of product "X"

"Of course", I have activated two-step Picking

In the first picking step, withdrawal, I have a WT in which I do a partial extraction of 2 UN of the material X.

This it forces me to read yes or yes the 2 serial numbers that I take to the intermediate location: two-step Picking...

Obviously, in the intermediate location, I will have to read them again to distribute them between the two deliveries to serve ...

My question is: How can I avoid having to read the serial numbers already in the first step of Picking? Is there any way to avoid it if the material has "Serial Number Requirement" --> "Serial Numbers in Inventory Management"?

Thank you in advance

    Hi,

    "How can I avoid having to read the serial numbers already in the first step of Picking?"

    There is of course no way to avoid this if you have serial number requirement C and when picking only a partial quantity. Doesn't matter if it is a direct picking or two-step picking.
